Aberdyfi 2014 Regatta a great success!
Aberdyfi was host to both Northern and Southern league...


 

After a wet and windy Saturday when thoughts of holding a rowing regatta seemed very unlikely, conditions drastically improved overnight Rolex Replica Watches and we were able to host a fantastic day of racing on Sunday, August 31st

Our Chairman, Nigel Pearson, said ,“ It was great to have so many boats from both the Northern and Southern leagues competing in our regatta today  - we had over eighty crews taking audemars piguet replica watches part across the four different race categories and it was quite spectacular to see so many boats out on the Dyfi estuary”

 “Although weather leading up to our regatta had not been favourable, by Sunday morning conditions had vastly improved and we were able to hold the event in warm summer sunshine.  The beach was very busy and plenty of people were able to enjoy the racing.”

 “Conditions for rowing were pretty good. During the first three races- the Ladies , Mens and Junior/Novices  - conditions were perfect with an incoming tide and a force 2 north westerly wind blowing just enough to add a little excitement to the races.”

“The last race of the day was the Mixed race and by the time the crews were ready to start the tide had turned, producing a lively chop on the water and some exciting wave surfing added another dimension to the race.” All kind of stylish replica designer handbags for you here.

 “ Thanks must go to all the competitors and their supporters for travelling from all parts of Wales to compete at Aberdyfi and congratulations to everyone who took part today.  Special congratulations to our own winning men's crew of Tim Chesworth, Paul Chesworth, Dylan Evans, Paul Cruickshank and our fantastic cox Ian Brown! Well done to our winning Ladies Vets crew of Kara Chesworth, Sue Gladwin, Sue Brazier and Sandy Andrews and to all our teams."

" A big thankyou to all club members who contributed by bringing food for the buffet and by making sure we were able to feed everyone! Thanks of course to the Yacht Club and the RNLI and to everyone who helped in any way to make the day so successful – in particular all the race officials, our very hardworking scrutineers, the Lifeboat and safety boat crews. David Roberts once again was our ‘voice of the Regatta’ and did a great job welcoming everyone, congratulating rowers and keeping everyone informed during the races.”

“ We all had a fantastic day and look forward to seeing our competitors again at the next regatta”
